Businesses today have to manage two competing challenges: Let employees work virtually anywhere, and at the same time, protect critical data on their laptops and removable media devices.
To solve this, IT professionals have turned to endpoint encryption. The idea is to encrypt the storage capacity on mobile devices, as well as any data stored on removable media, including thumb drives, external hard drives, and spinning optical media.
Unfortunately, once one problem is solved, another rears its ugly head: Users forget or lose their passwords. This results in lock-out, especially if boot media has been encrypted. For many companies, it’s just not practical to maintain a 24/7/365 helpdesk, but the need for key recovery doesn’t respect the clock. When a user needs access, a user needs access now.
There are solutions. CBS Interactive is proud to present, “Top 5 Best Practices for Effective Endpoint Encryption,” a live, interactive webcast with practical ideas for endpoint encryption and methods you can use to ensure that users are able to recover lost keys at any time.
- Learn about the risks of data loss when devices are lost or stolen. We’ll discuss a few scary examples of companies and government agencies whose gear went missing.
- Explore the benefits of endpoint encryption in protecting data in the event of theft or loss, including management, support, usability, and cost efficiency.
- Discover best practices for effective protection without incurring higher support costs and opening the company to new vulnerabilities.
